Quora Answers: The Dangers Of A Narcissistic Parent





How Can You Escape A Narcissistic Relationship When You Share A Child?


While it is possible to escape a narcissistic relationship when you share a child, it most definitely is not easy.

I’m speaking from experience. I married two different narcissists, and have a son with each.

I’ll give you some background information first.

Please bear with me because I want you to fully understand why escaping the narcissist is so important for your child’s sake.

My first husband was a Covert Narcissist. When we divorced, a very long and nasty custody battle ensued.

Not because my ex wanted our son. But because he didn’t want me to have him.

And because he knew using our child as a tool to torture me was extremely effective.

Horrible instances of parental alienation by my ex resulted in our child growing up very confused.

The narc consistently violated our custody agreement. The one who suffered most, obviously, was our son.

After several years of nonstop drama and chaos, my ex was convicted of possession of child pornography.

He was sentenced to two years in prison, and I was granted full custody of our son.

He was fourteen at the time. And by then, the damage was done.

I took him to counseling in a vain attempt to undo the damage.

For a while, he seemed to be overcoming his demons, and I was hopeful.

I wish I could say everything turned out okay. But it most definitely did not.

Eventually I was forced to admit that the sweet little boy he had been is now a narcissist himself.


I was with my second husband, a Malignant Narc, for eighteen years.

When our marriage ended, he didn’t fight for custody of our son, who is autistic.

But only because he’s forbidden to have any contact with either of us due to a permanent protective order.

It’s in place because of the extreme abuse he inflicted on us.

Both of my children suffered horribly at the hands of their narcissistic fathers.

It wasn’t until I had the gift of hindsight to fully realize the extent of damage done to their psyches.

Since I don’t know the details of your situation, I can’t offer much advice on exactly how you can escape.

I can only urge you to stop at nothing to ensure a successful escape.

Narcissists are not capable of love or empathy.

Not even for their own children.

But Narcissists are very capable of doing the most despicable things to their children!!

I’m not trying to scare you.

But I wish I had realized the extent of damage each of my exes was doing to my kids.

Find a way to escape.

And be willing to do whatever is necessary to save yourself and your child!!
